Every other day, every other day,
Every other day of the week is fine, yeah
But whenever Monday comes, but whenever Monday comes
You can find me cryin' all of the time

Monday Monday, ...

o.k., so maybe I'm not 'cryin'............
....scowling is more like it. Or just
sad face, which is not pretty either.

The good thing is that I give myself an extra hour and 15 each morning before I have to start the prep work to GET to the desk called 'Crazy'

And with two cups of coffee..........blogs and e-mail........sometimes a bit of art......well, this cranky girl can turn right around and begin to
reflect on what is good and sweet in life.

Without that hour and 15 there's no telling!!

So, I have had a few e-mails asking about that glorious stamp that Ryan gave me.

It's one of my absolute fav companies....... INVOKE ARTS.

It is #6323-F3 called Birdcage Bird and the date on it is 2008........
so that confirms my original thought that it's a new stamp
since I have drooled over their catalog ever since picking it up at Art Unraveled last year

dropping the major portion of my "pin money' at their table.

He really could not have chosen a better stamp.

I am pretty lucky that way.

This past Christmas my little bird, Renee, gave me the tin of stamps from Cavallini called Birds & Nests that I so adore I cannot put it away.

Sometimes I take them out of the tin and just look at them. They are
such quality stamps.

My Birds just know me.........
AND even Ryan's love, Ms. A. (I don't know if it's o.k. to use her name) found the perfect book that came along with the stamp.

I am CRAZY about this book and drawings.

This is one of the pages..........IS IT NOT FABULOUS!!!

Someday Ryan and I will do a book together.

He has a few stories already....and I will draw.

Although Ms. A. is an accomplished graphic artist.........so really, they could accomplish THAT quite easily.

I am a very lucky Mama Bird
Three wonderful little birds.

Thanks for the info on the stamp Rella. I love Invoke Arts too, but have not looked at their collections lately. Love the Cavallini stamps...have the same ones and I agree, they are so pretty and wonderful. Great book...love the illustrations.
